Barbecues Cause Two Portland Fires

Two fires in Portland should serve as a reminder to all of us. Fire officials say both fires were caused by barbecue ashes that were improperly thrown out. During the first incident on Northeast Lombard Street early Saturday, a man woke up his neighbors in the burning apartment by throwing things at their windows. The second fire was sparked that evening, when occupants on Southeast Madison Street disposed of briquet ash in a garbage can stored on the side of the house.
